Serious fall off the wagon

Well I took a serious fall off the wagon. I have gained weight, from 205 to 212 - not happy. I am back on track from tomorrow. I have shopped and prepared and am ready to go again, both in preparation and in mind. The fear, even after all my success, is that I will go back, I know 7 stone isn't going to jump back on but I am so frightened of it. Stress has been a big factor - work was bedlam and I wasn't preparing food, I didn't have time. However I never stopped training and that was a huge help with the stress. I don't know what I would do without it now. I am still loving tabata, really gives me the burn :) and am pleased that I was keeping up with Paul (the crazy ex-navy guy) on burpees and alt squats etc. Had new trainers this week, and those are making a difference.
So here we are  - 

This is January and June

I may be heavier but I see changes :) thank god :)
Check in with how I feel each day - should time allow

Been real quiet and busy of late, still been training, been trying to up my intensity and clean up my food so that the scale might move. However trying not to worry about the scale, trying to focus on working hard, eating well and concentrating on how I feel - Healthier, stronger, better.
I have such an amazing group of online friends, who through Beachbody have made so many wonderful changes to my life. I can't wait for Beachbody to hit the UK.
My latest goal is chin ups - doing negatives with Paul a lad who trains at the gym, not there yet but he thinks i will be by summer! So here is my current moto! See you soon, promise to update more often.

Awesome sesh

A really great session today :) Sprints and a strength circuit - which is getting a bit monotonous but was good and then a cracking abs session to finish - we were in pair and your partner had to it your feet away and you had to stop them hitting the ground with your abs only. Cath has abs of steel so I found it hard to move her feet, but mine were like a spinning top - really felt I worked and have that lovely ache tonight.
Hoping to try out cross fit on saturday :) really excited.

TRX trial

I let my baby (8) go to swimming class on her own today and she walked over to the gym (across the car park) to meet me from TRX class, bless her. TRX was not good today - it wasn't set up and ran 20 min late and lazy trainer was too busy enjoying the sound of his own voice to get us working well. Ah well thems the brakes. I will be going to boot camp tomorrow and hope to break a better sweat, only p90x2 is cutting it as a quality work out lately. Anyway here's me doing a pike! you will see my arse still has a ways to go!!!

Tabata first class not so first class

I enjoyed tabata but was expecting more, can't wait for the other trainer so I can properly get my sweat on next week. Tabata is a high impact interval training method. You do sets of 20 secs on and 10 off - we did 8 sets. We did a variety of exercises, jacks, press ups, burpees, alt squats, lunges, oblique twists. Should be a good fat burner but the trainer ( yes him) left far too large a rest between each set and this made u loose impituss! Well it is 6 am boot camp tomorrow so off for some zzzzzzzzz catch u soon
